Remember This TAS?
Well I do... because I used the wrong bios and now it's time to do it all again.

(Link to video)

The Stuff:

  • Bios: SCPH1000 (NTSC-J bios)
  • Hardest Difficulty
  • Goes for in-game time
  • Aims for maximum score

00085FBC (2bytes) was used to figure out how long each level took, be mindful as it carries over depending on the level.

Level Comparison

Blaster Soda Race 4.76 4.76
Shark Jumper 1.30 1.30
Mega Speed Race 33.43 33.35
Burst the Balloon 1.40 1.29
Race or Fall 33.43 33.35
Spaceship in Warp Phase 9.15 9.36
Building Climber 3.74 3.80
Facial Slot Machine 0.83 0.83
Totem Shrinker 0.74 0.72
Now I know my ABCs 0.52 0.58
Jump for the Meat 4.67 4.67
Total 90.69 90.67

You read that right 90.67 the game actually gets confused and says 90.69 at the end.

Level Comparison Frames

The comparison works from seeing the stage until the words Finish show up... it's weird I know but all the stages have it.

Time Progress:

This TAS took a longer time to complete I created 12 versions (4 were pretty much the same so I'm not counting them). Out of the 12 versions this was the fastest one for in-game time.

Your start is slow when changing to Hard.

It is... and isn't. In order to get the best round I have to wait 16 frames in order playing so I use the most unoptimal button presses then continue in to the TAS.

You have slower rounds than the previous TAS. NO VOTE.

This is true, but like the previous TAS that had slower rounds to the full TAS which was made and the 6th and 7th levels had the most optimal input yet both gain time.

Car Level:

The car level is now more optimized, I am unable to optimize this any further unless I switch difficulties from Hard to Normal but this TAS is built for HARD.

Previous TASes:

European Version with an ingame time of 101.34 (4:55) on Normal Difficulty.

Japanese Version with an ingame time of 92.38 (5:10) on Normal Difficulty.

Japanese Version with an ingame time of 90.69 (5:13) on Hard Difficulty.

This uses the Japanese Version and has an ingame time of 90.67 (5:11) on Hard Difficulty.

My vote is Meh, I don't know how to make it entertaining so I attempted in the only level I could and that's that.
